Parisian jewellers ‘Ambre & Louise’ joined forces with French perfume designer Roger & Gallet to create unique gift boxes… Limited edition gift boxes that are great to give and greater to get as they can be reused as jewellery box, as cookie bin, as coffer to treasure souvenirs or as box to keep any goods that are valuable to you.
The house of ‘Roger & Gallet’ goes long way back. Officially it was founded in 1862 but the history of this house actually begins many, many years before. In 1806 founder Jean Marie Farina established a successful business supplying Eau de Cologne, based on the historic original formula created by his great grand-uncle, Johann Maria Farina, in the 1700’s. Jean Marie Farina sold the catalog of his company to Roger and Gallet in 1862. The pair produced this beloved formula under the name Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille (‘extra-ancient’) Eau de Cologne and offered the fragrance in perfumed soaps and other scented products that delighted both new and old Farina clientele. The fragrance has continuously been in the Roger & Gallet catalog since its inception. The company made a name for itself with its luxurious bath soaps, which in 1879 first appeared in their signature round shape, with the crinkled silk paper and seal which are still in use today.
Over the years Roger & Gallet has become world renowned for introducing the ‘art de vivre’ in Paris and elsewhere. All the fragrances are designed by French master perfumers, the bottles are created by great French designers and the boxes are decorated with bespoke illustrations. The old Roger et Gallet boxes often were decorated with a lot of flowers. Exactly these old designs inspired the Parisian jewellery house Ambre & Louise for their newest creation. However, they wanted to add an extra touch of their own. For the joint venture they wanted to involve their own fascination for fairytales as well. As they love to play with different textures, ornaments, materials, … Ambre & Louise created golden flowers in relief on white metal boxes. Really classy must-haves. Definitely if you know that on the inside you can choose out of four Roger et Gallet fragrances and a deo roller with the same fragrance: Gingembre Rouge, Bois d’Orange, Fleur de Figuier and Fleur d’Osmanthus. An exclusive and nice gift to give away (for Mother’s day) or to treat yourself with. Which one do you choose?
